harry reid has also called republicans out for sabotaging the democratic process. now, putting this all into context, he tweeted out today, harry reid did, "i share the frustration of americans lamenting the lack of progress in negotiations to avoid a massive tax increase on middle class families. but for insight into why negotiations have been tough, consider the failure of the disabilities treaty at the hands of the tea party. those are the same republicans with whom democrats are supposed to find agreement to protect middle class families from a january 1st tax increase?" who could say it better? democrats are not being unreasonable here whatsoever. they are the party of reason right now. the people have spoken. house democratic whip steny hoyer says democrats are still willing to talk with republicans about entitlement reforms. they've been on the table for some period of time. that does not mean that i'd be prepared to adopt them now. but they're clearly, i think, on the table. republicans don't want to talk about entitlement reforms. you see, they just want the democrats to roll o

. senate majority leader harry reid spoke up. but in his case, in the form of a swipe. >> i sympathyize with john boehner. the key party has a firm grip on the republican party, and that's obvious, what's happened this morning here in washington. >> reporter: that disconnect in the gop was in the spotlight today. jim demint spoke out against boehner's proposal to the president. >> republicans should not be conceding that the federal government needs more money, negotiating with ourselves, and treating the president's proposal like it's serious. >> very critical of john boehner. and demint's press release aimed squarely at john boehner. $800 billion tax hike will destroy jobs, allow washington to spend more. as you all know, john boehner put an $800 billion tax hike as a center of his proposal. so john boehner got rejected from the white house, which wants another $800 billion on top of that in tax hikes and then rejected by the right wing of his own party which wants absolutely no tax hikes at all. so unlike harry reid, i actually feel genuine sympathy for john boehner. so kudos, speake

senate majority leader harry reid wants to make the filibuster a, shall we say, less attractive option. s one idea is to end the silent filibuster and bring back the old talky one, which requires filibustering senators to actually speak from the floor of the senate, sometimes for an entire day or longer. >> i'm going to walk off the floor in five minutes or maybe i could stay another hour or another two hours, but if i haven't been able too reach you after 14 or 15 or whatever it is hours and if i haven't been able to instill in you and senator moynihan some sense of, my gosh, all we want to do is to have the laws applied, and if you don't give a darn about that, then don't come down here, but don't whine and moan with factories and jobs leaving this place. >> al demato, former new york senator spoke for 15 hours and 14 minutes making it the second longest filibuster speech in history. d'amato also clocked in at 23 hours and 30 minutes, the second longest filibuster. the record for the longest goes to south carolina's strom thurmond who spoke for 24 hours and 18 minutes. like everything i

in not getting these top marginal tax cuts extended. i want to play sound from harry reid this morning on the floor. you get a sense the republican resistance is theater, but there is a genuine belief they cannot extend these things. let's listen to harry reid. >> how many times is charlie brown going to try to kick that football, because we know every time he approaches that football, it will be taken away from him. we are not going to fall for that again. the american people aren't going to be under the illusion that the republicans are some time in the future going to come up with revenue. they are going to come up with raising the rates or, madam president, we are going over the cliff. >> i'm reminded of the famous george bush adage, whatever it was, fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, it was actually shame on me. >> that's what republicans are saying exactly this, the white house has opportunities in the future in which it can raise taxes on the wealthiest and it should take those opportunities in order to get us through this crunch period. do the minimum that is possible n

very, very hard to block many pieces of legislation that the democratic leader harry reid was trying to pass through the senate. and demint made a point of personally going to harry reid's office to tell him face-to-face that he decided to resign. i can tell you as an observer of the senate watching relationships deteriorate, this was surprising but a good surprise. >> leaving on a good note at least with the majority leader in the senate. dana, thanks very much. and i'm joined now by senator demint along with heritage foundation founding trustee, the current president, we see the outgoing president, ed feulner, thanks for coming in. we're going to talk a little about the state of the heritage foundation and the republican party. the senator's here, the newsmaker, you shocked all of us. why did you do this? >> wolf, after this last election it's apparent we need to do more as conservatives to convince americans that our ideas and policies are going to make their lives better. the heritage foundation is the premier think tank, research organization, the premier idea group for the cons
